When the Mounds View High School football team takes the field on Friday night, it will be playing in its eighth consecutive section final. The Mustangs won the first four in that streak, but are winless in the last three.
If Mounds View is to snap that losing streak and reach the state tournament this year, it needs to take care of a surprise opponent in Blaine. The Bengals were the No. 6 seed in Section 5-6A but upset third-seeded Centennial last week.
